Nutty Neithan’s music career can be described in very many ways. His versatile talent is unquestionable, his dancehall prowess – unequaled, but why has he failed to settle for a particular music record label?

A few months ago, dancehall sensation Neithan Wamawungo Mukhwana a.k.a Nutty Neithan joined Wakaliga based Boom Bark Records. This became his sixth record label since starting his active music career. The singer behind big hits like ‘Bakuwe Kyonywa’, ‘Yafisi’, Bayaya’, ‘Walk 2 Work’, ‘Binkubye’, among others never seems to spend much time at any record label.

Nutty Neithan started his music career actively in 2011 with the Extreme Media Uganda Limited dance group. He left the group a year later to join the Infinity Dance Company. In 2012, Nutty’s talent earned him interests from Goodenuff Urban Records CEO Aydee Ddumba who decided to take him up and help him push his music career.

Towards the end of 2012, the singer joined Jah Live Family and did the ‘Magic Town’ allstar song together with other big stars including Eddy Kenzo, TIP Swizzy, Barbie Jay, among others. On December 26th, that same year after performing at a Boxing Day bash, he was approached by Ronald Maro who offered him a chance to join the Vocal Police Entertainment group

He made a few big songs, and actually became more popular while at Vocal Police. Together with Ellie Cham (RIP), Empress (who later became his wife), Van Data, Ray Signature, Roni Stamina, and many other upcoming artistes, Nutty Neithan built Vocal Police into such a strong empire. He later left to start a solo career.

The singer then joined Supanova Music Group under the management of Just Jose and Pajobo Boaz in 2015. He was the second artiste signed to the label after UK-based Ugandan songstress Angella Nabuufu commonly known as Ang3lina. Supanova did not achieve its set targets and was disbanded a year later after the exit of both artistes.

His exit from most of the record labels above has been resonated with poor pay, and a blatant desire to move on to the next challenge. Whichever the case, Nutty Neithan is not someone to be stopped when he sets his sights onto something and he always leaves.

The ‘Gwabise’ singer then created Humble Management with his former CEO at Vocal Police, Maro. The RnB Kyabazinga left in 2016 sighting bad terms of association and joined G-Music. That meant that Nutty Neithan became the CEO of Humble Management where he has been till he dumped it for Boom Bark Records.

The dancehall singer is now signed to Boom Bark Records, a record label that deals in video and audio recording as well as talent management. Boom Bark Records launched its services officially on 7th February 2018. It is home to a couple of other artistes, producers, and comedians including Nina Roz, Jay I, Imon Pro, among others.

Nutty Neithan might have re-branded his art and looks and found a place suitable finally, but we cannot put our stamp on that as yet.

Either way, he is a hugely talented singer who deserves the praise from the music fraternity regardless of which camp or music label he belongs.
